Did you vote?
I didn’t vote early and stood in line for a while to cast my vote Tuesday morning.
No matter what your beliefs are … and who you do or don’t support, it’s a good thing to live in a free country. I’m grateful to be an entrepreneur and create my own future.
I depend on MYSELF. Plain and simple, and that’s very empowering.
I can create any life I want in this world, I just have to have a plan to get there and allow my Higher Power to manage the agenda.
You want to know who and what I support?
I support taking control of our own future. I support surrounding ourselves with people who challenge us to be our best. I support making a positive impact in our community.
I’ve been investing in coaches, trainers, programs, and products for nearly 20 years now. Investments that help me take my business to the next level so I can expand my impact on the community and create financial freedom for my family.
So today, I give Dr. Deborah Carver-Hodges my FULL endorsement 🙂
Dr. Hodges is coming to Corpus Christi to present Conservative Ways to Prevent Alzheimer’s Dementia and Tips on Optimal Brain Health Thru Exercise and Ketones.
Learn how to improve your brain health thru exercise and nutrition with neurologist, Deborah Hodges. She has been practicing neurology for 18 years currently in San Antonio and previously in Corpus Christi. She specializes in headache medicine but sees all neurological conditions.
It is resources like this one that’ll help you take real control over your wealth and health in the future.
I see too many clients who are missing out on a massive amount of changing the situation of their health because they are not tapping into the “right” combination of exercise and nutrition.
Don’t fall into this category!

I lost my Dad in January this year and have a personal interest in forms of dementia and the aging body. I attended Deborah’s seminar in September for my own information and just know what she presents will interest you.
She is a very soft sell on some products that can help you with managing the ketones part of the nutrition that I have only sampled at this point. Her information was so solid I’ve been experimenting on my own with the information she provided.
For example; butter and coconut oil in my coffee to introduce good fats to my brain first thing in the morning.
Do yourself a favor and join me.

Cold days call for warm, hearty comfort food and, boy, do I have the perfect recipe for you today. This Meaty Comfort Chili has all of the warmth, flavor and comfort that you could ask for in a healthy dinner. This recipe tastes even better the next day!
You have several serving options with this chili. You could serve it in bowls, topped with a sprinkle of cheese, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh green onions. You could scoop it over freshly baked sweet potato. You could use it to dress up a serving of scrambled eggs. You could serve it, chilled, over a large salad. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!

What kind of person are you, early or late to your appointments?
Me? I tend to run behind and get there on time … usually.
My husband on the other hand likes to get everywhere 20 minutes early (with a book or crossword puzzle in tow to kill the extra time). While admirable, I’ve been unable to adopt his good habit.
Recently, I bought a couple of tickets to hear “Heaven & Earth: The Art of Listening” at TAMUCC’s Performing Arts Center for Tuesday evening at 7:30. Btw … I am not a “night” person.
I have to take measures toward self-care to stay out late, especially on a week night. I had to stop working early, take a nap and scheduled one of my team to train my 6 am group class the next morning.
I agreed to leave the house BEFORE 7:00 pm to get to the concert 20 minutes early like my husband prefers. It was a date night after all.
We arrived in a good frame of mind looking forward to our evening. I went to the ladies room.
When I came out John was motioning to me with a forefinger beckoning curl and a halfcocked grin on his face. He thanked me? For the first time in our marriage I had managed to arrive somewhere early …
… ONE WEEK EARLY!
John asked if I would like to go get a flu shot instead. I went along with the suggestion because suddenly I was all dressed up with nowhere to go.
I hope you enjoyed my blunder and that as we all age, perhaps you could relate.
